How are sales for Smart Cars in your area?

Over the last few months, I have seen a lot fewer Smart Cars here in Sarasota FL where I bought mine 2 years ago.  I ordered a 2010 5 weeks ago. and hope to have it soon.  I wonder why there seem to be fewer cars on the road.  Perhaps sales are down.

If they put a 3 cylinder Mercedes diesel with 70mpg + sales would roar.

No idea on the "missing" cars.  Due to the transition I think the June figures were fumbled; hopefully things will be back on track for the July numbers (first month under M-B USA.)  I'm sure the folks in Montvale will know the per dealer sales figures but doubt if they will make them public.

I wonder if the missing 130 cars are Car2Go? John, any per dealer numbers?

Turns out the June 2011 figure was inaccurate; M-B USA updated it to 330 cars.

This is a very good question. Here's the US sales totals since smart hit our shores.

This is from a post at SCOA (numbers from Daimler I assume)

"smart sales (registrations) in the USA so far:

24,622 total for 2008

14,595 total for 2009; 39,217 cars total for the first 2 years

5,927 total for 2010; 45,144 cars total for the first 3 years 

2011 sales:
358 cars in January
484 cars in February
425 cars in March
467 cars in April
492 cars in May
470 cars in June

2696 First Half of 2011" (average 449 a month, trending to 5392 for 2011 at this rate)



"47,840 cars total to date"

 

It would be great to see figures for each smart center. Although right now they might be depressing to see (no pun intended).

With the 'transition' the exact count of smart centers isn't clear, so how many per dealer is hard to average.

 

Now that Daimler is backing the smart in the US public awareness (and education about smart) will go up. The new forfour will help as well, giving families a chance the get a smart. Hopefully, we will see more smarts from now until 2012. The 2012 ED will be much more affordable as well.

 

Getting each smart centers sales numbers? Sounds like a another project for me. lol
